After getting overwhelming response on my skincare routine and home remedies blog, I felt the need to write home remedies for skincare part 2. In the previous blogpost, I mentioned my top favourite (5) home remedies which might help getting a healthier skin, this post is a continuation of it – with another 5.
This mainly focuses on the pores on the face, and the impact these have on your appearance.
1. Yogurt – I am a big fan of dairy products, after milk, yogurt is my second option with skin as well as hair care. Yogurt not only tightens the pores but also reduces blemishes. It can be used as a base with a lot more products like papaya and cucumber.
How to use – If used alone, just apply it (2 tbsp) on your face and neck, leave it for 20 minutes and rinse with fresh water. Repeat this 2-3 times per week.
2. Tomatoes – Tomatoes when used with honey could help you with your pore issues by maintaining the pH balance and getting rid of all the impurities.
How to use – Take 1 small tomato(pulp) and 1 tsp honey, mix and make a pulp out of it. Apply it on face and neck, and let it dry. It is recommended to repeat at-least 4 times a week to get better results.
3. Aloe Vera + Lemon Juice – Aloe Vera is becoming very famous now a days for glowing skin and as an interior decor plant. It is rich in Vitamin C and E, have anti-bacterial properties and a great moisturiser. The extract of Aloe vera works like wonders on sunburns and wounds, when used with lemon juice, it could be used for lightening dark spots.
How to use – Either use directly by extracting the fresh pulp from the plant, or use as a mask of 3 tbsp of aloe vera pulp + 1 tsp of lemon juice. Apply the mask on your skin for 10 minutes and wash with fresh water.
4. Baking Soda – Do you have acne and pimple issues? This trick is for you. Acne/pimples are due to excess oil on the face and baking soda when used in the form of paste soak excess oil and reduce clogging. This also help in removing dead cells and lighten scars.
How to use – Make a paste by mixing 2 tbsp each, baking soda and warm water. Apply it on your face, massage gently for 30 seconds and leave it for a minute. Wash with cold water.
JUGNI’s TIP – don’t practice this more than once a week.
5. Rose Water – Rose water can be used as a base in a lot of face packs/masks preparation, but it also works great when used as a toner. It balances the pH of the skin, stimulates blood circulation, cleanses and increases moisture levels.
How to use – Dip a cotton ball in the cold (refrigerated) rose water and pat pat on your face :). Do it everyday for younger skin. This is my favourite.
It’s time to go and use all the products lying on the counter of your kitchen. 🙂 Your skin (face) is the most important part. of your body, pamper it, feel it and take care for it.
